A second person, 22-year-old Bryant L. Rhoades of Union City, is being held in the Mercer County Jail for felony obstructing justice. The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office claims Rhoades gave false information about the case to investigators.
On Nov. 30, 2011, the bodies of 79-year-old Robert Grube and his daughter, 47-year-old Colleen Grube were discovered in the home where they lived on Burrville Rd. near Fort Recovery. The pair had their hands bound with duct tape and were shot to death. At a press conference this morning, Grey emphasized that the case had never gone cold in the 16 months since the murders. He also stated that the investigation is continuing. Investigators are still seeking at least one more suspect in the case.
“During those interviews, we were able to put people in that we were curious about, and looking through the information that we got from court orders and search warrants we were also able to eliminate some people,” stated Grey.
Sanders faces multiple charges of aggravated murder, murder, involuntary manslaughter, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and theft.
The case is more complicated since Sanders was 17 years old at the time of the murders. Grey noted that the case against Sanders will have to begin in juvenile court due to the suspect’s age.
Efforts are in process to bring Sanders back to the County.
